SUSU Handbags Make Every Day A Special Occasion


SUSU Handbag

Disclosure: SUSU Handbags provided me a Melissa Handbag in the color of my choice to facilitate this review. This post was created in partnership with eAccountable.

Some women are shoe people. Others are handbag people. I’m definitely in the latter category. While I love great shoes, it’s handbags that really catch my eye. So when SUSU Handbags asked me if I’d like to check out one of their designer handbags up close and personal I hesitated for a nano-second before I said yes. I’d seen their bags around town and loved the classic styling, which made it very difficult to figure out which handbag I’d like to try.

Named after the founder, SUSU Handbags are classically designed and styled with elements you’d expect from a high-end handbag. I’ve been collecting handbags since CycleGuy got me my first Gucci bag when we were in college. But the Melissa bag from SUSU Handbags is my first red handbag!

When I switched to the Melissa, I realized it’s the first handbag I’ve used in a long time that does not have outside pockets. Many of my older handbags are like this, but I think as cell phones became part of our life many handbags were created with outside pockets. Not to worry, though, there are two soft pockets inside. I have an iPhone 6+ and a Samsung Note 4 so I use the larger pocket for my phones and the smaller one for my keys. If you have a smaller phone, it would fit perfectly in the small pocket. It’s also nice to have a zippered pocket for my lipsticks, pens, and receipts. From the photo you can see my daughter’s drum sticks peeking out of the bag. There is plenty of room to carry everything you need. Even if that includes things your kids should be carrying.

The handbag is really well-made using 100% Genuine Saffiano Leather with beautiful piping, substantial hardware, and good balance. The bag has little feet on the bottom, if you were to put it on the ground. And the inside is lined in a soft cotton fabric. I use it daily and am always getting compliments. The red really does draw attention, but so does the classic design. Something else I really like is that the SUSU stamped into the leather is very subtle. I have a few handbags that are emblazoned with logos but  when I want something classic and elegant, logos are the last thing I want splashed all over my handbag. And like all luxury handbags, yours will come with a dust cover.

This would be a great every day bag and would be terrific for travel because it sits nicely at the elbow or held close under the arm with the handles over the shoulder. It also comes with a detachable cross-body strap to allow you to use it in a more hands-free way. Whether you go for a classic color or one with a pop, the Melissa bag is one you’ll appreciate for many years to come.

But SUSU Handbags has so many different styles. Whether it’s a tote, crossbody, satchel, or clutch you’re sure to find something that fits your style. And just in time for the holidays, SUSU Handbags will be available at 40% off with free shipping on 11/28/14 with the code BLACKFRIDAY. I have my eye on a few styles, I’m sure you’d find something perfect for you too!
